No one wants to admit that their loved one is a drug addict or alcoholic. Unfortunately, in our society today, people are becoming chemically dependent on a daily basis. There are a few specific things that you can look for to help you see the problem before it gets to out of control. Any drastic change in behavior may raise a concern, such as lack of interest in school/grades, family, or activities. Here are a few things you can look for specifically.
-Staying out all night, and sleeping all day
-Experiencing euphoria, becoming extremely happy for no reason
-Sickness like the flu, in and out of the bathroom.
-Dishonesty or lies about very simple matters
-Things have gone missing unexplained in your house
-Secretive phone calls, not responding when asked where he/she is going
